“NASA will hold a news conference
at 2 p.m. EST (11am PST) on Thursday, Dec. 2, to discuss an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life. Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.” Watch it HERE
NASA Watch blog theorizes
it is "Arsenic-based biochemistry" regarding "the implications for the origin of life on Earth, how it may have happened more than once on our planet, and the implications for life arising elsewhere in the universe." Noting that "NASA has not found life on any other world."
Astrobiology Magazine goes a little further to discuss potential "Slime Worlds
Other theories are being spread
that "they've discovered arsenic on Titan and maybe even detected chemical evidence of bacteria utilizing it for photosynthesis..."
I myself am hoping for something supermassively larger, perhaps a planet eating sentient ala Galactus
